ooVoo Introduces Real-Time Video Conversation Recording and Telephone Calling to its High Quality Video Chat Service

New ooVoo 1.5 Enables Calling to Mobile and Landline Phones, Sharing of Video Content and Video Effects

NEW YORK—February 6, 2008—ooVoo®, an innovator in the way people communicate with real-time video, today announced the release of the newest version of its real-time face-to-face video chat service, ooVoo 1.5. Now offering more ways for ooVoo users to communicate and share conversations. ooVoo 1.5 combines the highest quality video chat available online (adjustable to up to 30 frames per second), video conversation recording and calling to landline and mobile phones, beginning with worldwide calling to the continental U.S. and Canada.

“ooVoo users are constantly looking to communicate and share their lives and experiences with friends, families and co-workers,” said Philippe Schwartz, CEO of ooVoo. “In each new version of ooVoo we look to improve the quality of our service and offer features that will help our users to communicate in a more meaningful way. ooVoo 1.5’s new features build on our core promise of making communicating online more meaningful with the highest video quality available—real-time or recorded—which presents our users with unsurpassed, face-to-face communication quality.”

Providing the best communication experience found online today, ooVoo 1.5 offers new ways to create and share content including recording a video conversation for friends or colleagues or for posting online. More than 1 million video conversations take place on ooVoo every month, and now users can record a face-to-face “reunion” with friends and family members from anywhere in the world on ooVoo. Business colleagues can record conversations to create video “notes” of an online ooVoo meeting. Journalists or bloggers can create an interview series to be uploaded on his/her web site. The length of a recorded conversation is limited only by the storage capacity available on the hard drive of the user’s computer.

To further enhance the creative options available, ooVoo has added a suite of visual effects, such as backgrounds and facial overlays of characters and creatures that users can add to their video messages and live video conversations. In addition, the visual effects package allows users to share a desktop and files from their computer, on screen with participants in a conversation.

ooVoo 1.5 allows ooVoo calls—from anywhere in the world—to a mobile phone or landline in the continental U.S. and Canada. This functionality is a great enhancement to ooVoo’s high-quality, multi-party video conversations as it allows those who are unable to join via a computer meet with up to five others in an ooVoo conversation. It’s as easy to use as ooVoo’s video calling feature. Simply enter a phone number into the ooVoo dial pad and press the green call button. A phone icon will appear as the call connects and begins.

From February 4 to March 1, 2008, users who download ooVoo 1.5 will receive two hours of free outbound calls on ooVoo to any landline or mobile phone in the U.S. and Canada from anywhere in the world.

Additional features of ooVoo 1.5 include:
